Why study in Canada?

With highly-acclaimed universities, flexible study options, research facilities and competitive tuition fees, Canada offers an academic experience to international students that’s hard to beat. With a vast spectrum of options in all study areas, students can choose from mainstream degree courses to specialisations and vocational programmes – there is something to suit the preference and future goals of every student.

Canada also offers international students the options to stay after the completion of their courses and gain work experience. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has a Post-Graduate Work Permit programme that allows international graduates to gain skilled work experience, which is crucial to the success of their permanent residence (PR) visa application. International students can also bring their spouse and children to Canada while on a study visa, if they fulfil the IRCC visa conditions.

Find top degrees for your career

Gulf News Study in Canada education fair will showcase future-oriented study programmes in humanities, science, engineering, business, health science, skilled trade and university pathway courses from top-ranked institutions. Experts will also guide students on standardised language proficiency tests such as Pearson Test of English (PTE), IELTS and the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Programme (CELPIP).
